Deezer, the French music streaming service founded in 2007, has just announced asee reached 90 million titles in its catalog. The previous balance sheet reported 73 million shares. The company therefore went into overdrive to add 17 million additional titles.
Already in 2019, Deezer claimed to have a much larger catalog than its competitors, namely Apple Music and Spotify. Louis-Alexis de Gemini, CEO of the platform, then declared to offer more than 53 million songs on his platform. As you can see, this figure has only increased in three years.
Important precision, Deezer confirms that these 90 million tracks are available in High Fidelity Hi-Fi quality, which is the equivalent of the lossless FLAC format (16-bit/44.1 kHz). And this for all subscribers, regardless of the offer. Remember, however, that Deezer is not the only music streaming service to offer this quality, Apple Music also offering Hi-Fi quality, Dolby Atmos and spatialized audio at no additional cost since May 2021.
